We wandered into Tantardino's which was absolutely packed on a Friday night. Found out it was a 2 hour wait to get a table, so we decided to get a pizza to go. We wandered up to the bar, and managed to score 3 seats at the bar. One of the owners daughters was working behind the bar, said, no... read more

Very busy, full of locals on a week night. Need to book to be sure of a table. Pasta unexciting but plentiful. Service good.

We have been eating her for years and its always been delicious. The pizza is good, thin crust too thin for me, I like the regular crust. My favorite's are the meat and spinach ravioli with meat sauce and the basil vinagarette salad dressing is too die for! They are usually very busy so a reservation is only guarantee you'll... More

It wasn't outstanding, yet it was good. My pizza had a great tasting red sauce and pizza crust, but the toppings were somewhat bland, and the small sausage cubes were obviously (or seemed to be) reheated from a bag of frozen sausage topping (all were uniformed in shape and texture). My wife's was a very good one, a chicken-veggie with... More

What a wonderful meal, cream sauce with chicken and pasta, lasagna, pizza, calzone, salads with a wonderful basil vinaigrette. All the food was perfectly prepared. We had seen the crowds in the parking lot, so we did make reservations. We arrived early and spent some time at the bar with Gina. This is truly a family affair with lots of... More

We reached this place around 9:00 PM after spending the day hiking in Lassen Volcanic National Park. As we pulled into the parking lot it looked like the place was overflowing with people. We suddenly realized that it was a Saturday night and we did not have a reservation. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who informed us that... More

This place is out on the peninsula area of Lake Almanor and is a little distance from Chester if that is where you are staying. It's a nice drive, though. They do a terrific business, mostly local it seems from the area where they are located. They have a lively bar, plenty of tables, a fired-up bunch of servers and... More

We have never had a bad meal here...great Italian dishes and pizza. Delicious sandwiches for lunch, too! It's owned and run by a lovely family, and the service is excellent. Great bar, I might add!!

Can't go wrong here. Always great. Only downside is it is not open on Sundays. Pizza is very good as well as the pasta dishes. Love the lasagna!
